The 2016 Presidential election will go down as one for the record books. During the primary, seventeen candidates stood on the stage vying for the prize of being the Republican Presidential candidate. Everyone had their favorite. However, the one who NO ONE believed had a chance in hell was the last one standing: Donald J Trump.
The Democrats had their own battle going on with Sen. Bernie Sanders setting the young voters in his party on fire with chants of Feel the Burn, and they even adopted a chant from Trump supporters of Lock Her UP! Sanders tried to get them to stop, but it remained a common chant by his supporters. His poll numbers were high, he was winning primary after primary, until…
Anyone who believed Hillary Clinton was going to allow a lackluster Senator steal her thunder was sadly mistaken. It didn’t matter that a Sanders rally was packed with THOUSANDS of supporters, while Clinton had to bring in big ticket entertainers just to get people to show up. Nope, Hillary had bought her way into the driver’s seat by bailing out the bankrupt Democrat Party, and no one, not even someone with higher polling was going to get in her way.
So, by co-opting the Super Delegates, Hillary Clinton was crowned the Democrat Party candidate for the 2016 Presidential election. Regardless, of the spin, Hillary Clinton WAS NOT the first woman to run for President of the United States. That honor goes to Victoria Woodhull. In 1872, Victoria Woodhull became the first female presidential candidate. Her candidacy preceded suffrage for women in the U.S. In 2016. Hillary was the first female presidential candidate nominated by a major party, but not to run for President. Just more proof the Democrats really don’t care about women. If they did, they would have claimed Woodhull as the first woman presidential candidate. However, why mess up a good lie with the facts, right?
In the weeks running up to the election, we were told Hillary was a shoe-in. It was a given. Hillary was going to wipe the floor with Donald Trump. It was her destiny. It was her turn. However, life doesn’t always pay attention to someone’s perceived destiny.
On election night, we all sat glued to our TV screens watching the results come in. State after state, released their totals, and fairly early on things were neck and neck. Then something unthinkable happened. States that were supposed to be a firm Clinton state went for Trump. Oh, no, how was that possible?
Then into the wee hours of the morning, we watched as Clinton supporters in that arena with the glass ceiling above began to see their dreams of a President Hillary Clinton crumble before them. Tear-stained faces and shocked expressions filled our TV screens, as the great Hillary bandwagon seemed to crash and burn.
Then there was a glimmer of hope for the disheartened Democrats… Hillary won the popular vote. Hallelujah, life is good again. Hope is restored! The Leftist Media pundits tripped all over themselves claiming Trump really didn’t win because he lost the popular vote. There were cries to abolish the Electoral College. After all, it really isn’t fair. Of course, they forget how during the election they beat the drum of how Hillary would easily win the electoral college vote, and that’s what makes you President.
But facts have a funny way of working their way to the surface. With the daily drumbeat of how Hillary won the popular vote, a few weeks after the election President-elect Donald Trump tweeted…
In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally

Of course, the reaction from those on the left was hard and swift. They accused Trump of being an “internet troll” and starting a “Twitter-born conspiracy theory.” It didn’t matter the group, True the Vote, an online anti-voter-fraud website had claimed illegals of casting roughly three million votes in the 2016 Presidential election. Those on the left and their lapdogs in the media claimed this was just a lie to cover for Trump’s foolish claims.
However, a study done by a New Jersey think tank proved there is evidence that’s exactly what happened. A study done in 2014 in the online Electoral Studies Journal made a similar claim: In the 2008 and 2010 elections, they said, as many as 2.8 million illegal noncitizen votes were cast, which was enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes and congressional elections. This study was authored by Jesse T. Richman and Gushan A. Chattha, both of Old Dominion University, and David C. Earnest of George Mason University.
The realization from this study was noncitizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote they needed to overcome any filibuster to pass Obamacare and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Not surprisingly, the report got practically NO coverage in the MSM, and when it did, it was just a quick mention of no importance.
However, there was a new study done by Just Fact, a libertarian/conservative think tank. They used data from a large Harvard/You.Gov study which samples tens of thousands of voters, including those who admit to being noncitizens. This is done every two years.
The findings are not only eye-opening but are downright disheartening. In 2008, they claim as many as 5.7 million noncitizens voted in the election. In 2012, as many as 3.6 million voted, the study reported.
In 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates there were 21.0 million adult noncitizens in the US, up from 19.4 million in 2008. Therefore, it’s highly likely millions of noncitizens voted in the 2016 presidential election. This was also NO ACCIDENT. Democrats had extensive get-out-the-vote campaigns in areas heavily populated by illegal aliens.
As far back as 2008, Obama wasted no time in letting illegals know election records would not be cross-checked with immigration databases. Heck, several states wanting to require proof of citizenship to vote have been stopped by court injunctions. So much for a fair and honest election.
Heck, if you’re a noncitizen or here illegally, don’t worry, you are free to vote all you want. How’s that for a kick in the teeth? Unfortunately, we have no exact count of votes placed by illegals, but the available data points to the number being in the MILLIONS. It is within the realm of reality that illegal votes cast for Hillary Clinton in 2016 are what gave her the popular vote. So, President Trump’s claim is more than likely accurate and truthful.
Now we know why the Democrats are hellbent against building the wall. I guarantee if those coming here illegally voted Republican, that wall would have already been built and would put the Wall of China to shame.
So, the next time you hear a Democrat claim Hillary won the popular vote, you’ll know the truth. Get ready for another battle this November, my fellow Deplorables. WE MUST NOT LOSE THE CONGRESS TO THE DEMOCRATS. We need to come out in massive numbers to overrun all the illegal votes cast for the Democrats. For if we don’t, we will leave President Trump hanging out there for impeachment from the loons on the left and the traitors in the GOP. We cannot let that happen.
